Felicia the Catwoman by Claudija Felicia the Catwoman by Claudija
Fanart of Felicia the Catwoman from the Darkstalkers games by Capcom. Felicia's fur and background were done with Photoshop's renders as the rendered fur looked better than my attempt at colouring it right, the rest: skin, eyes, tongue and hair - are all done by hand with a brush tool and a smudge tool to blend in tones and give the finished effect.

For anyone who has or will ask, the original lineart is here:-

Well,it seems this work will always have a place in our hearts...
I guess you did her justice...I can feel the passion you put into it...your heart...your soul.

So allow me to correct this mistake,and to elaborate on your picture of Felicia now.
:love:
I will admit that the way in which you have drawn
Felicia is just fantastic and leaves an impact.Why do I say so ,
you may ask ? I can say that you have captured her personality and beauty well - which is worth the admiration.
Also, your decent work on proportions and curves highlights her elegance and seems to capture the very essence
of Felicia.

As for my final thought ,I find your work to be pretty balanced Felicia's kind and reassuring expression,(since you've done such an excellent job with her-and she always
worries about others a lot and cheers them up).
All in all it is a gorgeous picture...It all began here, after all.
What do you think?

I will though I promised Xionia her color palette first as she likes the pink hair with white fur so I shall do hers first :P then one for you. When I find the right piece of Feli I intend to do that is as for the moment I have a friend's character to do hehehe

I have found a line art to paint as Black Felicia which is ossum. The artist has said they have no issues either just pop them a note once done which is even better so shall get on to her asap. Mimi's in the flats stage so she's about a quarter done already *purrs*. Weirdly though on my copy, the black fur looks more green.... wonder if that's just an issue with the TV I used at the time or not though xD

I had this same issue with some friends but that was more about "for me her fur looks like Dark green" i guess some screens display the color differnt or something?

Anyway thanks a ton for what you're going to do, you're Awesome! 

i'll wait patiently until that day ;3

Even looking at her here on your gallery it still looks a green-tone to me hehehe. Basically, if you look at the flats color I used on the piece I'm painting up as Black Felicia, that to some of us heh: is the lightest a black item should be. It's in the neutral band so has no contamination from the other colors. I'll run DS3 now and look on there to see if it still looks green hehehe. Whilst I'm at it I can make Xionia her two palettes as I did promise, so two birds with one rock *chuckles*

I know it's possible to color edit Vsav rom with some hacks, my friend did it but i never really tried because i have my favourite color already in the game.
However i was thinking to start Hacking a copy of my rom just for mess around with the tool and maybe making a Cham Cham palette for Felicia

Cham-Cham hehehe. I like the Original Edit Mode for all my color needs heh as it still works even now. I like customisation myself. I don't know what the Vsav rom is heh. My two discs whilst they might be editable would then not work within the consoles as the Saturn and Playstation 1/ 2 are a bit too old now to accept changes heh

I don't know much about Darkstalkers but I have seen a lot of this girl and the green haired beauty girl. Capcom has made some pretty beautiful designed girls over the years. This is definitely one of them :) I usually see fanart of this girl with blue hair, but honestly how you did the darker purple look is more unique and honestly appealing. It's cool to me how detailed you put the full look of her hair. It isn't just a straight kind of long, her bangs and the curved areas look beautiful. She may not have much clothes on, pretty much none XD, but what she does have covers enough and is a cool looking design. The nails/claws on both her hands and feet look dangerous, just like a powerful feline. The furry ears are very cute to me and I find her green eyes attractive :) The small butterfly is a cool little detail :D

Now, -this- is the commentary I love best. Telling me exactly what you like best so thank you deeply. Morrigan Aesland is the other main heh, and Felicia is often shown in her main color palette you see everywhere, but I spent time on the Playstation One version of Darstalkers 3 the best of the set *nods cutely* and it has an Original Edit Mode. You recolor the character how you wish, name it and can then play it in the select mode. I originally did a pencil piece from Run Ishida's comic books with purple hair and black fur, and one red fur with normal blue hair (both shouldbe here on DA) and thought about the best of both: this being the result of my custom palette. I'm sure NekoHybrid could tell me but it looks like a similar palette she has in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 yet was designed around 2003 somewhere. All my Felicia works are done with my own palette except Trumi's as he requested I painted his lines in her traditional colors. Felicia is nude, but her fur from cat form just covers her modesty hehehe and while I wish I could: her whole look is by Capcom, even the butterfly which she chases as a win pose in the games. Once again, thank you for your in-depth comment and hope you are safe.

I highly recommend the Playstation One Darkstalkers 3 if you have a console for her heh: by far the best of the set. If you have a PSP of any kind, Darkstalkers Chronicles: The Chaos Tower isn't a bad version and if all else fails, Resurrection if you just want to experience a Darkstalkers game being that Capcom have said at least for the moment: no more Darkstalkers games.... a pain but oh well hehe. You're still the right person to have commentating as your in-depth views really do help me a ton as I paint Gloria at the moment heh so thank you again hon

Capcom has a nasty little habit of not making games of good series. Megaman is a series that hasn't had a game in who knows how long. I don't have any playstation system sadly :( but I will look at youtube to see some of the gameplay :)

Aww :blush: Thank you for your kind complements! I appreciate that. I just say what's on my mind when I have time to. Some days it's impossible to make a full comment but I do what I can when I have time to.

Good luck with your work!

Wasn't there a game released recently by Megaman's creator? It's essentially the same premise but with all-new characters and worlds? Can't remember its name now.... On the PSN you can find a Megaman game there which I think is the last one by Capcom, it pops on the PS Now for Playstation 4. Think it's Megaman 9 for PS3 if you have one of them *nods cutely*. I wanted to play the one where you get to be Zero as I found him the more cool of the two heh. There's a new Luciana artwork in production I should be posting in the next day or two when she's done just so people know that Neverwinter hasn't totally taken over my life :P

Capcom were in the process of starting that up. Trouble is the head of Capcom made this... really.... stupid decision to benchmark all games sold and only if it reached his projected number: then it would get a sequel. With the success of Darkstalkers 3 on PS One (we call it the PSX), and the release of Vampire Savior on the Sega Saturn: he figured that everyone would want yet another remake and released Darkstalkers Chronicles: The Chaos Tower which is basically the PS  One DS3 without the Original Edit Mode and instead a Bloody Palace-style mode where you had to complete some crazy challenges in order to unlock everything. Unsurprisingly, this didn't do so well but with the Udon DS Anniversary artbooks out, he decided to give another try and released Darkstalkers: Resurrection which was the Arcade Mode only of both Night Warriors and Vampire Savior 2 with one bonus character: Dark Donovan who was Donovan if he'd succumbed to his vampiric heritage. The majority of DS fans felt cheated and yet despite this it sold a couple of million units. Due to not reaching his targets, he vetoed (cancelled in mid-production) Darkstalkers 4. He's also the same man who fired DMC and Bayonetta's creator and most recently the man behind Resident Evil: so he's not exactly been making the smartest of decisions for his company or us gamers of late and we all know the SF fiasco recently hehehe. The characters are so loved and popular as cosplay, in crossovers and yet.... yet: he won't green-light a new DS game..... go figure

I tend to purr when happy so often pop up *purrrs* for times when someone really does make me happy. We just wanted to see if there was a cute little icon to put in place of it *chuckles*

Not really no, next year I am hoping to go to Finland for my friend's wedding: that means I've got saving up to do for a wedding present, travel fare and of course: spending money for food out there as well as getting a passport.... I am in for one long year but should it all come together it will be awesome. This year I have: the friend who is marrying in Finland's birthday next month and then his farewell party just before he moves out there in August. Outside of that, hoping to get a job for a change as so far, no joy... The only other thing I have planned to do really is write an Egyptian fantasy tale for a friend on Fur Affinity and possibly designing another sexy furry femme... this one on a beach like Sylvestrina with her own rubber ring and floppy hat... we shall see.

How about yourself my friend?

Thank you so much for the kind words *smiles softly* The yellow fur has the chocolate-brown hair if I remember rightly it's the.... *thinks* MP color, if not it's MK at least on DS3 hehe. I did actually recolor this as each of her offical DS3 colors and your fave is in there but I haven't put them up as it's a bit crazy having 9 versions of one thing *chuckles* so I put up my Original Character Mode version instead and Classic Felicia just to show Trumi how I could have colored his lineart.... now the demo as it was has become almost as popular as this custom and so she's staying *smiles and chuckles*

When I had her felicia yellow it was on an arcade thing at a youth center in my town many many years ago. I assume it was likely the original game ^^

I think most of the palettes were retained from Vampire Hunter: The Darkstalkers (DS1's Japanese name), Vampire Hunter 2: The Night Warriors (Darkstalkers 2: The Night Warriors in native Japan) and then into Vampire Savior: Lord of Vampire (Darkstalkers 3 in Japan) and the odd game called Vampire Savior 2: Lord of Vampire which basically had only one ending... They certainly use them again in Darkstalkers Chronicles: The Chaos Tower hehe. It sounds like the color you get when you select Feli with M(iddle) P(unch), have to check my PSD to find out as I colored them whilst making the selections on the game hehe
